Abercorn

Abercorn was founded in 1929 and is located about 10 km from Sutton along the American border on Route 139. This town was originally called Sheppard’s Mills in honour of one of its first colonists, Thomas Sheppard of New Hampshire, who built a grain mill and sawmill here. The name Abercorn came from Linglithgowshire, close to Edinburg – after James, second Marquis and first Duke of Abercorn – and still inspires memories of Scottish nobility. Thomas Spencer built the first log cabin in Abercorn east of Ormes Road in April 1792. Experience the charm of this small hamlet that has maintained its Loyalist cachet.
